So I had never heard of this nice, little blog award until Lesley from By The Porchlight and Becca from Barrel and Willow left me comments saying they had nominated me for one! I spent a little time looking around at other people's posts about this little thing - and I really love this idea. One of my favorite thing about blogging so far is communicating with bloggers who are also fairly new at this, too and learning more about them and what they're doing. It's a really cool thing about doing all this.

The Liebster award is given to upcoming bloggers who have less than 200 followers.

Liebster, as a word, is German and means: sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome. 

So basically, this is a really fun thing! And who doesn't love lots of little, personal facts? So here's bunch of them.
The Rules:
1. Each person nominated must post 11 things about themselves.
2. They must answer the questions that are given to you from the person who nominated you
3. You must then create 11 questions for the people that you nominate
4. You must then nominate 11 bloggers and link them in your post.
5. You then let that blogger know they are now nominated!

Lesley's Questions:
Becca's Questions:
11 More Quick Facts:

My Eleven Questions for You:
1. Who is your favorite cartoon character?
2. Describe your blog in one word.

Fact 12: I'm bad at nominating people for things.


  1. Congrats, lady! and, I wanna know what's on that list of names you've been compiling! I have favorite names, too, that I sorta collect, or at least try to remember. They're all very old, beginning-of-the-century sorts of names, haha. My newest addition: Eldridge.

  2. @stoic and pariah
    I love that you are into names, too! I don't know what it is about them or the idea of them - I'm always taking note of ones I come across that I love. A few of my favorites right now are Hollis, Linus, Scout, Merit, Hadley, Story, Leni....I could talk about this forever!

  3. Ha! I wish I could sing too. I mean, I do sing a lot but it doesn't great just ask my husband.

  4. Jesse! I am totally rubbish and only just saw this, how cool! Thank you! I better get answering these questions :) I hear you on the vans question, I feel the same way about converse - so many colours!

  5. @Annie
    i am the one who is rubbish! i was totally supposed to let you know that i picked you...and when i finished making this post i was like done! and completely did not do that.


Thank you so much for reading and taking the time to say something back. I love hearing what you have to say...
